What is hospice? Hospice is a philosophy of care focused on comfort and quality of life, intended to give seriously ill patients and their loved ones meaningful time together when the focus is on the people, not the disease.
Hospice is “comfort care,” meaning it aggressively treats pain and other symptoms without trying to cure the illness. It is a whole package of care services that is almost always provided at the patient’s home, whether that’s a private residence or a care facility.
Curative care is meant to cure a disease. Palliative care is meant to make the patient more comfortable. To palliate is “to make a disease or its symptoms less severe or unpleasant without removing the cause.”
Grief is the normal and universal reaction humans have to the loss of those they love. When your loved one dies, you go through a period of bereavement and experience grief that is utterly individual to your experience and yet shares many aspects with all others who grieve.
Global Home Hospice puts the needs of patients and families first. We know you want to return home to the people and things you love, and we have the resources to make that happen.
